[image]Agricultural Fires in Northern India - Image courtesy Jacques Descloitres, at NASA GSFC
Fires crowd up to the border of India (right) and Pakistan (left) at the foothills of the Himalaya Mountains. The fires are likely for agricultural purposes, and they have been marked in this Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) image from the Aqua satellite with red dots. The image was captured on October 14, 2003.The high-resolution image provided above is 500 meters per pixel.

On June 9, 2005, a severe windstorm sent trees, billboards, and power lines crashing to the ground in the province of Punjab in western India. As residents of this populous region recovered from the severe wind and rain, they heard warnings of a dust storm in the next 24 hours. As predicted, it swept into the region the next day. This dust storm, over 1,000 kilometers (620 miles) in length, stretched from central Pakistan into northern India.The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MOD...

Dust, likely mingled with smoke from agricultural fires, blew off the coast of Pakistan on May 13, 2006. As dust hovered over the coastline, the people of both Pakistan and India struggled with a heat wave that sent temperatures above 50 degrees Celsius (122 degrees Fahrenheit), according to news reports. Rainfall the following day brought lower temperatures to the region. Sensor: Aqua/MODIS. Data Start Date: 5/13/06.

At the base of the Himalaya Mountains in northwestern India, the annual agricultural fire season was underway in the states of Punjab (closest to Pakistan) and Haryana (to the southeast) in mid-October 2005. Punjab occupies less than two percent of the area of the country, and yet it produces about two-thirds of the food grains in India. Wheat and rice are the two most commonly grown food crops. Farmers use fire to clear fields and get them ready for new plantings...

Ripples in the air are often visible in cloud patterns, and this image is one example. In this case, something caused a disturbance in the layers of the atmosphere, setting up a wave similar to waves in the ocean. Here, clouds have formed on the crests of the rising and falling waves of air. These waves are called “atmospheric gravity waves,” and they often form when air flows over a mountain range...
